Back to it today.
The first thing that I have to say to you is that I am fully aware that I am no longer blogging every day like I might have done in the past. One of the main reasons for this is that I just don’t have the time to be able to do so any more, and this has meant that I have had to concentrate on other things. Plus, if I was taking time out of my day every day to blog, then I wouldn’t be able to get as much exercise done, and this would mean that I wouldn’t have anything too great to blog about. But I am sure that I will still be able to get in touch with you every so often and let you know how I’m getting on.
The major decision that I have made this week is that I’m not dieting any more. Of course I do still hope that I will be able to lose weight, but I am planning on doing this through exercise now rather than diet. After a full year and a half of not eating the foods that I enjoyed, I have now decided that I need to start enjoying my life again, and if that means eating a little more and exercising to make up for it then that’s just what I’m going to have to do from now on. This weekend wasn’t the best that I’ve ever had, because it was Father’s Day, and this meant that we went out for lunch and then had a relatively nice dinner later on in the evening. I never normally eat two big meals in a day, but I did yesterday, and I know that I’m going to have to work hard this week in order to make up for that.
Last week, I went for a run outside for the first time in a couple of months. I always feel a little bit self conscious doing this, because I just think that people are going to be looking at me. However, I came to the conclusion that if they were looking at me, they would see how much fitter I am getting, and would be admiring me for it rather than mocking me for actually doing the running in the first place. So out I went, and as usual I was not able to run more than a couple of minutes without getting out of breath. But I am aware that this is just something that I am going to get better at with practice, and to do this I need to start running more regularly then every couple of months when I get brave enough. When I have graduated from University, which happens in just under 5 weeks, I will try to set myself a proper time sheet of when I am going to go out for a run, and I will try to do it every morning before I have my breakfast. I would find it much easier to be able to do something like this, because it means that it would be over and done with before I even had the chance to talk myself out of it again, which is something that I do usually end up doing. I will always think to myself first thing in the morning that I am going to be able to go out for a run during the course of the day, but then things will happen to mean that I put it off more and more, to eventually mean that I don’t end up going at all, so this is something that I am going to work on over the next couple of weeks.
